Situated approximately 650km south west of Katherine, just 100km from the Western Australian border, Limbunya Station is North Star Pastoral’s largest property at 520,000 hectares. Limbunya sits in the Victoria River Region and true to the area, it is lush with natural valleys, gorges and creeks.
Running a herd of approximately 50,000 head, Limbunya’s breeding herd have had significant core genetic improvements with the introduction of high-quality Brahman stud bulls supporting the careful management of weaning practices and herd age profiles. Limbunya also runs a highly effective Rumen Development Program which accelerates the development and stabilisation of Weaner Rumen prior to their entry into the backgrounding process.
Significant infrastructure improvement has taken place at Limbunya over the past decade. Newly built yards have been placed strategically throughout the station, lessening stress on cattle and staff by reducing walking distances during muster. Hundreds of kilometres of new fences lines and a number of low maintenance, solar powered bores have been established leading to more efficient herd and pasture management.
